Why do I need an SEO involved in my website migration?

Retain your search visibility

Website migrations can be a high-risk period for organic traffic. Without proper planning, some websites have experienced a significant drop in visibility lasting up to 18 months post-migration. It’s far more efficient to minimise the risk of traffic loss during the migration phase than to address it after the fact.
